The CAQ is pleased to share our views related to the May 2023 International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB): Consultation on Agenda Priorities. The CAQ is supportive of the ISSB’s efforts to develop and seek comment on its agenda priorities. In our letter we highlight the importance of market acceptance and market adoption of the IFRS Sustainability Disclosure Standards. We recognize that deciding on agenda priorities in a complex and evolving sustainability reporting environment presents many opportunities and challenges. We believe that continuing the momentum generated from IFRS S1 and S2 by focusing on interoperability, implementation, new research and standards, connectivity, and outreach with stakeholders including investors and the IASB, will position the ISSB well to make these important decisions.
